Looks like no one has groomed the river in quite some time, ran into quite a few trees blocking the entire river which led me to capsize. At 20mph there was not much time to pull off to the side. It was a quite an intense ride, got pinned under water upside down, and capsized twice, had to pull off and drag the kayak quite a few times to avoid potentially dangerous rapids. Heard 2 people have actually died on this river along this trek from Auburn Hills to Rochester in recent years.
I'm a bit adventurous and am actually considering doing it again, but be careful if going in May after heavy rains, this river is no joke at this time. Very beautiful ride though, it was hard to believe I was in SE MI.
